Take challenging courses in high school and work hard. Day-to-day classroom work and homework develops the knowledge and skills students need to succeed on the SAT.
Go to Official SAT Practice at Khan Academy for free, personalized practice by the people who create the SAT. We recommend students practice at least 6–8 hours on Khan Academy to prepare, though many students practice more.
Take the PSAT/NMSQT, the PSAT 10, and the PSAT 8/9 (if your child's school administers these tests). These tests help students get ready for the SAT.
